Bison is said to be a leaner red meat and has more protein than beef – but don’t be fooled: these BBQ bison burgers are packed with flavor and will ooze with juices.

The bison is flavored-up with chopped jalapeño, browned or almost burnt onions and your favorite BBQ sauce.
- a pound of ground bison meat
- 1 bell pepper, chopped roughly
- 1/2 small to medium white onion, chopped roughly (separate a quarter for later use)
- 1/2 small to medium red onion, chopped roughly (separate a quarter for later use)
- 1 egg
- 1 jalapeño pepper with seeds
- 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red paper flakes
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper
- Sliced cheese
- BBQ Sauce
- Kaiser rolls or other soft rolls
Mix the bison meat, onions, bell peppers, red paper flakes, jalapeño, bread crumbs, egg, salt and paper in a bowl. Make sure to thoroughly combine everything for an even flavor. Form the mixture into patties (about three to four pieces, your choice!).
Cook the patties in olive oil on a hot skillet for about three minutes each side. Repeat this two to three times. Be careful when flipping the patties as they break apart easily. Top the patties with cheese and allow to melt a little before taking them out of the skillet. Do not turn off the heat.
Toss the separated onions on the skillet and stir until they start to turn a little brown.
When they do, place the Kaiser rolls on the skillet face down and press them down with a spatula for about a minute.
Remove from the skillet and immediately place the burger patty on the bun, including the onions. Dress the burger with BBQ sauce and serve.
